It would be nice if I knew what they were saying. Video's are a little problem for the Deaf. Just not enough vol control to allow some to hear. Even if there were that amount of control the neighbors would complain. They are Cal fans not Tennessee.

As usual the weakest link in the offensive chain is Chaney..He's gotten better this year but he's no genius in drawing up game day schemes and makes to many bad calls that kill drives like throwing a risky pass on first down following a big running gain for a first down..It won't be that hard to find some MSU weakness's in their defense..Chaney has a game breaker in CP but insists on keeping on sideline routes..There is the possibility of lining up CP in the slot and moving Rodgers outside on occasion..That would confuse the defense and create a mismatch with a 8 yard cover cushion but Iam sure this hAS never crossed his mind..MSU is experienced and for sure will be jumping all over the place to throw of Bray's reads

I wouldn't say that Chaney is good or bad at this time. He is a passing coach that is for sure and that doesn't get it done in the SEC. Maybe out here on the left coast it would be more to the fans liking. But Chaney hasn't had a running game until the Ga game. We will see just how much he has up stirs the rest of this year.

It may be that CP, being only 5 games into his major college career, isn't knowledgeable/experienced enough to make the reads required of the slot. And he has shown a penchant for getting behind the DBs on post patterns, just not a penchant for catching the the bomb.

With Mississippi St. focusing on the Vols air attack, I expect a heavy dose of our O-line and Neal. Especially because the O-line is arguably playing the best of any group.

Go Vols, Silence the Cowbells

Seems we were having same conversation a few weeks back about how good and experienced the NC State backs were and what a battle it would be between them and TB and receivers. I know bullies are SEC team but they haven't faced an air attack like ours. Our pass offense will make them look average at best. Would the last one to leave Starkville please turn out the lights. Thank you.

Chaney does like to pass. Part of that was before the run showed up with much much better coaching for the halfbacks. The last two games, Tennessee has had a fair balance in pass/run: Akron 43/46 and Georgia 45/40 so saying Chaney is passing too much isn't true when he knows th O-line will open the seams and the HB's will run downfield using power to break tackles instead of always bouncing it outside. The rushing game is constantly improving. The defensive players need to suck it up and understand they have to be 'students of the game' so they know where they're supposed to be and who they're supposed to cover instead of asking a team mate or being told by one the're out of position while Miss. State's offense is putting the ball in play. They miss their own assignment and screw up the concentration of their team mate who's having to deal with them instead of concentrating on his own position. If they've improved even a little during the bye, the D will get the ball back into Brey's hands often enough for Chaney to call a balanced attack and win the game. I just don't like seeing trick plays, or a whole series of pass plays when they absolutely are not necessary to win a game. That's just being cute. Fun to watch and great if it works but like the Pig Howard Wildcat, a momentum killer if they get crushed.

I'm not sure about your logic of "throwing a risky pass on first down following a big running gain for a first down." How does missing on a first down pass kill a drive?

Also seems like nobody is talking about OUR secondary.

National Rank:
Interceptions:
MSU and UT -- tied at #7 with 9 interceptions each.

Individual Leaders:
Byron Moore (UT) and Darius Slay (MSU) -- tied at #2 with 4 ints each.

When you consider the vastly different quality of the offenses MSU and UT have faced, specially the passing offenses, you have to ask yourself, "Which of these two teams actually has the better secondary?"

Also, NC State has just one less interception this year than MSU and UT do. Bray, Hunter, Patterson and Rogers torched those guys. I doubt they are losing sleep because they're facing MSU's secondary this week, and I'll bet our secondary is getting a bit fired up by apparently not getting any respect.

You're preaching to the choir brother. Can I get an amen?

Absolutely, but would somebody, please, do something about ending those chase scenes.

We can beat them if we all play as a unit and the defense can stop them from gashing us.

The pass/run stats have to be broken down into situations, not total.

Reason, depending on how you came up with those numbers the runs could include and most likely do include the QB, and WR run plays. Which would also include QB being flushed and tackled for a 1 yard gain or loss. So if you remove say 8-10, for reverses, wr run plays, and QB flush runs the number grows even more. Those are not true designed running plays or running formations.

Also running on 3 and 8 to set up a good punt because you've thrown it 2 times in a row for no yardage is not very productive. So you would need to look at situational running plays.

Bottom line Chaney aint very good.

Tennessee will win, IF they don't beat themselves with mistakes. It should be a good game and I'm very happy that no body on the team or coaching staff is under estimating MS State.
